Abstract

The 2010 Winter Olympics will take place in Vancouver, British Columbia, 30 miles north of the Canada – U.S. border. Vancouver is the northern terminus of a highway corridor that extends south to nearby cities in Washington State, including Bellingham, Mt. Vernon, Everett, and Seattle. Based upon existing analyses and data, together with knowledge gained from prior Olympic games, this report discusses certain cross-border Olympics-related impacts that could occur along that corridor. The report focuses upon the period immediately surrounding the games, but includes brief comments regarding pre– and post-games effects.
